For more than two decades now, several enterprises have managed all facets of their relational data by the help of SQL Server. With R and Python model training and scoring, SQL Server is now moving further than querying relational data by unifying graph and relational data and placing Machine Learning to where the data is. It is easy to integrate and analyze data across different types of data – also when the amount and types of data increases.
SQL Server 2019 has created a unified data platform with Apache SparkTM and Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) together with DQL Server as a single, integrated solution.
The major news in SQL Server 2019 is the Big Data clusters, but don’t forget the many improvements that continue to improve and transform the centerpiece of the Microsoft data platform stack.
SQL Server is available in a local version as well as in Microsoft Azure.
